T the time of going to press the body of Alphonse
Xavier who was drowned in the raging Roseau River
last Saturday and swept ou: to sea had not been recovered.
Xavier was attempting to rescue his common-law wife
Denise David stranded on a rock in the river. She was
eventually pulled out on the end of a rope by Firemen F.
Cuffy and B. Bethel. At about the same time Xavier's
son, Richard, was knocked down by a truck in Newtown.
Unusually heavy rains during the past week have
caused swollen rivers and several landslides. A small one
blocking access to the power station at Trafalgar was soon
cleared, but it took nearly tree days to open up the Layou
Valley Road at Atlee, during which time traffic for ,the
North had to go via the Imperial Road.

The reason for publication of that

was highly critical of St. Kitts' Chief
Minister. He went on an 'Industrial

spent was questioned: Mr. Southwell
told the press it was "nearer to

DOMINICA HERALD


PAT STEVENS NOTE BOOK
Ignorance personified It seem so evident that one
becomes a public enemy whenever his motives are to cdu-
cate and enlighten his people.
I regret very much to have to deprive my readers of
another in the serIes on political education to have to reply
to the author under the caption of "Anxious Reader". It
is a true saytng that food's rush in where angels fair to tread.
And that where ignorance is bliss tis folly to be wise.
Any one who read the letter of Anxious Reader can
clearly see that the writer failed miserably to make a point
on the issue at stale criticising my article on the D.U.P.P.
being an obstacle to National Progress. And until the
writer denies one point raised in my article I am prepared
to consider his reply as being personal and not factual.
And my estimation of such an individual is that he or she
is highly educated in ignorance and wAl versed in illiteracy.
Why' should the writer insist in calling on the
HERALD to reject my articles when we believe in the free
dom of the press ? Why the writer should be particularly
severe on the Stevens, is it because we though few are a
force to be reckoned with when it comes to corruption, and
other such aspects which contribute to political and econo-
mic backwardness ? We are extremely proud of our
character which is responsible for our fairlessness (sic) when
it comes to anything d~ic mental to society. -
The cowardice of the individual can be clearly seen in
the writers failing to place his or her signature at'the end of
his or her article. This infernal habit that persons have to
screen themselves behind the iron curtain to make attacks
in the press is something that must be watched carefully
ancdsudh men are dangerous.
SJ do not think it necessary to waste valuable time and space to con-
tinei my comments on an anonymous letter mixed with some ambiguity
here and there and which is a perfect example of statements lacking logic
and convincing arguments..
I would like :to make a point i connection to Mr. Swinburne
*Lliradgs amclE-oniE Irflttinppeag saAhGJinicle i
dated 2nd Sept. 1964. The writer seemed to have left his business for a
moment to concern himself with the ability of the Dominica Minister cf
Education as far as handling matters in this particular portfolio i; concerned.
I would be happy to inform him and others who tend to think
alike, that the Dominica Minister for Education has had thirty eight years
of experience in education as well as being qualified from a recognized
instiiibn and who was responsible for making a valuabk coi.trburon
to th6 professional and clerical section of this territLry, I'shlJgd:i further
though w.tti a certain amount of eluctauce to state that he is now the
representative of some of the Eastern Caribbean certzries now attending
the Commonwealth Education Conference beld in Canada. So for the
information of youtn writing in the press they must be fully knowledgeable
of the facts and must not allow their earlier stages of their journalistic
career to be marred by personal sentiments or by external influences.

F we accept the fact that calysonians are
the natural baliadmrakers of this region,
and are (at their peak) social comments,
tors whose stinging lines cannot be inhibi,
ted by censorship, and if we forgive them
their obscenities as we forgive other indivi,
duals their pomposities, we are bound to
admit that the 'top calypsonians' are a
force in this hemisphere. They have be-
come a travelling force too, bounding
across continents like quicksilver, taking
with them the idiom and sometimes the
idiocies of West Indian life to expose to
wondering foreigners.
It was our pleasure this week to renew
acquaintance with a calypsonian who was
crowned n federal times and whc, with
a loyalty rare in local political circles
(since calypsonians are politicians as well
as artists), deterr ined to look up an old

thing about this,encounter is that top cal-
ypsonians are devoid of colour and class
inhibitions. They simply recognise fellow
West Indians as such.
It was C.L.R. James who placed the
calypsonian squarely in the front rank of
sociopolitical commentators with his post,

Detention
Hardship
Dear Editor,-Please allow
me space in your valuable
columns. I certainly do be,
lieve in discipline and also
encourage those who enforce
it especially in such times
like these. I -appeal to the
Heads cf the Secondary
Schools to use discretion and
humanity in dealing with
detentions especially with
children coming from the
country districts.
Take for instance a case in
a Roseau High School
on Thursday I7th Sept. A
young girl of 15 years was


detained till about 6.00 p.m.
although the one responsible
had perfect knowledge that
the child lives over seven
miles away. About 6 p.-n.
the c.iid was released. The
child informed the teacher
that she cannot go because
all transport was gone. The
teacher then told the child
that she would have to walk.
If that teacher has or hd
a young daughter, wo-ld she
like to see her walking alone

A New Conception Of Mental
Illiness -- Part iH
By Dr. Robert Steinmuller
Mental Retardation
The psychiatrist does not deal with mental retardation.
This is a problem for the psychologist. There is a great
number of mentally retarded persons, i? Dominica both
children and adults, and a great deal of work needs to be
done to turn such retarded persons into useful and creative
citizens. Firstly the level of retardation muet be valued, only
then can a programme of treatment be mapped out. A.
gceat deal of irreversible retardation is caused by early mal-
nutrition. Government must be prepared zo spend money
on combatting mental retardation as indeed it should on
mental health in general. A mentally healthy community
is r potentially economically viable community,
Treatment
A grat deal of somatic therapy (i. e. treatment by drugs
direct'.ecting the body) can be carried out by ordinary
Aoctoi without recourse to a psychiatrist. When these
drugs (chorpromazine and reserpine are the basic drugs)
were first introduced, the mental hospitals were speedily
emptied of the cases of neuroses. Anxiety neuroses can be
wiped out by medication although a modicum of anxiety
keeps a person on their coes: danger causes anxiety, with the
approprie reaction!
Sedatives, bromides, barbiturics etc., were used in the
past but the modern tranquillizer works more effectively and
allows a person to carry on a normal life without feeling
sleepy.
Of the other new forms of medication to relieve symp,
toms, the psychic retetors are extremely powerful in deal,
ing with psychoses such as schizophrenia, having a pro,

sion reactors act mere slowly, often taking two or three
weeks.
Shock Treatment
Severe cases of depression, in which, from a humane
point of view, it is unwise to allow a patient to suffer front
his depression for more than a day or two, are treated bi
one of the two forms of shock treatment. Pardy on account
of the word "shock" the idea of such treatment causes fea
both to patient and relatives. This is quite unnecessary
The idea of this treatment is to wipe out, temporarily,, al
memory of recent events which are causing the depression
The memory returns in a matter of weeks, during whici
time the mind of the patient can be built up to withstand
and deal with the problem. Two forms cf shock tretzs
ment are in us". The first is by applying a brief electric
current across the temples, causing immediate unconscious
ness. The second way is by the injection of a massive dast
of insulin. The effect on the brain in both cases in very
similar. This treatment ir,,more often than not, very mucd
more effective than the use of drugs in cases of depression


SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1964


Ithe sick one can unburden the priest, the doctor, the
social worker can all help at times.
If however the patient is unaware of the reasons for
their ill health then the reason is in the subconscious. Help
must then be obtained by talking to a psychiatrist, probably
two or three times a week, at least. The services of a
psychoanalyst can be even more effective, but a course of
analysis is a six-day-a-week for from one to three years
affair and correspondingly costly.
Definition of Terms
A Psychiatrist is always a qualified doctor who has
specialised in mental illness, its cates, symptoms and treat,
ment by shock or drugs. A Psychologist, on the other
hand, is one who has studied are allowed to work along,

Dignity, Respect & Love
One of the oldest and simplest forms of treatment is
"Milieu" Therapy or environmental therapy. This should
always be practised in EVERY case. It consists, quite plainly,
of giving the patient as normal and natural an environment
as possible and treating him or her with dignity, respect and
love. The same conditions must be followed in the home
of the patient, since the family and local environment is
equally important. Counsel and guidance to ihe family by
a mental after-care service are vital for a full recovery and
to avoid any recurrence of the illness.
Psycho-therapy
Often mental ill-health is caused by something of
which the patient is conscious but fear or guilt prevents the
person facing up to reality.' In such cases the psycho-therapy
necessary can be supplied by a sympathetic person to whom

see the passes kept at ground level
or as low as possible and the general
tone of play augured of fine things
to come. Young Elwin of D.G.S.
initiated some fiue moves but D.G.S
lacked finish and also muffed two
sitters. Gage at full-back for the
Birds had a good match so also did

On a rain-drenched s u r fa c e,
which rendered ballcontrol difficult
D.G.S. did themselves a lot of credit
to hold Blackburn to a -- I draw.
There was nothing in the play and
the two goals came from penalty
kicks, John converting for Black-,
burn and Charles for D.G.S. The
players tried to make a match of it,
and provided the fairly large crowd
with some degree of entertainment.
Empire's Fine Victory
Spartans had only themselves to
blame for allowing Empire toget
the better of them in the second half:
it was Spartans all the way, but
gradually the Empire boys could be
seeu combining more dangerously.
After thegoaless first half Empire
piled fne pressereJot siSi

holding the LEmpire forwards at bay.
Cuitero6, however, netted a fine one
to put Empire one-up followed in
.the 4ist and 55th minutes by two
'Sharp' Elwin goals.
St. Lucia's Release
A release over Radio Edos (795)
stating that the Secretary of the St.
Lucia Football Association urging
the other Windward Islands to reply
soon, stating whether they would be
participating in the Football Tourna-
ment scheduled to be held in St.
Lucia in November leaves many
baffled, as it is generally believed
that D-ca will be hosts to the foot-
ballers this year. D.A.S.A. person-
nel have confirmed that this is so
and we therefore trust that an ami-
cable solution to the apparent mis-
understanding will soon result.

ly long distances and that all thisis
nothing new to him; congratulations
to him on a fine double effort.


Emile .riffith, world welter-weight
champion retained his title when he
dramatically outpointed Britain's

He was decked for S in the 6rh

It was only Curvis' second set-

minor injuries to the eyes and wants

(Cont. from page 1)


It'was fitting that th e
Dawbiney Club should pay
hom-ge to one who made a
great contribution to educa,
ticn in Dominica. It was
significant to note that not
only had he spent his energies
in the cause of education but
he had in the process dis,
played an attitude to it which
was badly needed today.
That he served with a sense
of vocation and a sense of
dedication in that he had a
certain dignity'of demreanour
which made an impression
on all who met him. The
President quoted the words
of Mr. Jeffers himself on his
tour of duty at the school
"that having been with the
school well nigh a generation
it may be thought that be
was the Omega of things".
Mr. Maynard felt that Mr.
Jeffers must, li k e Albert
